How Do I Check Messages on My Charter Voice Mail?

Charter voice mail replaces a traditional answering machine. The voice mail picks up after four to six rings, and can store up to 45 messages for a maximum of 31 days. The voice mail system alerts the user that they have messages by pulsing the dial tone. Charter users can access their voice mail messages from their home phone or from another phone.
